Prime Minister Sheikh Hasina today announced to abolish the existing quota system in the public service recruitment amid protests.
“The quota system will be scrapped as the students do not want it,” the premier said while addressing at the parliament this afternoon.
The prime minister’s announcement came amid demonstration of students across the country demanding reformation of the quota system. The students of public and private universities across Bangladesh have been demonstrating to press home their demand since Sunday.
About the attack at Dhaka University vice chancellor’s residence on Sunday, she said no student can carry on such attack on their teachers. “The attackers are not eligible to be students,” she said.
